First Spanish student at the Clinton Global Initiative

Thanks to Laureate International Universities I was given the incredible opportunity of participating in an international political summit in New York City such as the Clinton Global Initiative, an event organized by the Clinton Foundation.

Attending the Clinton Global Initiative and being able to listen to Bill Gates or Joseph Stiglitz was an experience that encouraged me to work hard to be there again some day

After several tough rounds of interviews, questions and videos I was finally selected among thousands of applicants to represent over 1.000.000 Laureate students from all around the world in the event. In addition to this huge confidence, I was also honoured to  learn that I was the first Spanish student that attended the event and one of the youngest ever too being 20 years old.

During my days at the event I was able to attend conferences from remarkable speakers such as Richard Branson, Lawrence Summers, Joseph Stiglitz, Bill Gates, Jack Ma or Jim Yong Kim.

Interview to Chelsea Clinton in the Clinton Global Initiative 2015 for Laureate International Universities

In addition to this, I also had to present the live broadcast of the event for Laureate International Universities’ students and interview leaders such as Chelsea Clinton, Julia Gillard, Madeleine Albright, Yang Lan, Jesse Jackson or Ted Danson, among many others.

Finally, making a dream come true, I was also able to meet President Bill Clinton during the event and share my view of the current international political situation with him.
